  1. Francesca:as a born-again Christian and Holy Spirit filled I am sure you know about the 300 scripotures in the OT regarding the Coming of Christ.Jesus saved my life from Hell and not knowing the love of God.
    Why don’t you produce some books on The New Testament and then your books on The Koran.I am sure
    many Muslims would be interrested in your work.,,,I will pray for you. My prayer list lengthens exponentially….None of you ideas/theories convince me ,having been born-again 24 years and involvemeny in the satanic occult.I detest the occult.We must give Jesus Christ the praise.


    • You do know this is a post about Francesca Stavrakopoulou, not by her, don’t you? So you can’t comment and expect her to read it, you see. I trust that helps.
